What a nice picture to start off the day with, even through the window, you have caught the two lovely coloured birds as if they posed for the camera.
With the snow and ice which greated us this morning. They know doubt need us to keep them fed. Well done.

Goldfinches are a lot more common around Wigan than they were 40 yrs ago. Every morning about 5.45 even though it is pitch black, I see a small flock(or Charm) on Robin Park Retail Park. Nice shot by the way.
